This was done for a recent client and I won't post the entire image until well after their wedding - but this gives you an idea of how much fun it is being a calligrapher and dancing on the page.
What you see here is the result of a request from the client to me for "more flourish." Not every day I hear those beautiful words. So yeah!
This couple was such a delight to work with - really - most of them are. The whole Bridezilla thing is blown way out of proportion. All of the brides I've worked with have been so sweet and grateful for and excited about inviting the living, inking hand into their wedding plans.
This artwork was first sketched out in pencil and then completed in Illustrator with the pen tool. LOVE those handlebar curves!
